Prayer Points for the Week 

The World

  • Incendiaries have been fired from Gaza into Israel, Israel has launched air strikes on Gaza and the peace with Hamas appears fragile. We continue to pray that the new Israeli government will be effective in finding a lasting peace
  • Disproportionate effects of women’s job losses are highlighted as a result of the pandemic. Women’s jobs in the healthcare sector are 70% higher than men. Many are unpaid, and are running out of options
  • Australia’s Human Rights Commission is calling on Australia to cut numbers in immigration detention, and to close the Christmas Island centre. Pray for all refugees, that they might be treated with justice and compassion
  • Ethiopia will go to polls on 21 June. Pray that ethnic unrest and economic challenges and famine will not disrupt this third attempt to hold a peaceful election, and that it might be a path to future solutions for people caught up in civil strife. Thousands of refugees seeking safety in Sudan find little help, food or comfort
  • Anti-coup activists in Myanmar are training with ethnic armed groups in border regions, as Aung San Suu Kyi’s trial continues and an anti-military movement gains momentum. Pray for a return to a pathway to democracy


Our City and State
We continue to pray for so many who are struggling to repair houses and property after the storm damage has seriously disrupted lives and left some without shelter, electricity and drinking water. We are thankful that COVID restrictions continue to ease, but we remain mindful and prayerful for all those whose livelihoods are challenged and threatened through disrupted businesses. Give us all a spirit of generosity to be aware of any we know who are struggling, so that we may be ready to help in any way we are able.

The Anglican Communion
The Church of North India (United); Pray for the new Primate of the Episcopal/Anglican Province of Alexandria, Archbishop Sami Fawzi who paid tribute to the 21 years of committed ministry of his predecessor, Archbishop Mouneer Anis.

The Australian Anglican Church
The Diocese of Rockhampton (Bp Peter Grice, Dean Melusi Sibanda, Clergy & People).

The Diocese of Melbourne
Brighton Grammar School (Ross Featherston, Principal; Chester Lord, Chaplain); Upper Yarra Parish (Luke Whiteside).

Our Cathedral
We pray that we will continue to work together to find creative ways to engage in ministry according to what the limitations will allow. Help us all to be more focused on what we can do, rather than what is still restricted, and guide us as we make plans for opportunities of being together.

Those in Sickness or Need
Joan and Bill Woodhouse, Daniel Anneslay, John Zhong, Emilio, Chris, Robyn & David Forbes, Judy Clift, Andrew, Janet Marsden, John, Henri-Felix Vinson, Sum Vita, Hodgson Family, Jennie Carolane-Balks, Farah Le Dupont, Doug Baker, Rhonda Bone, Monique Quinn, Martin, Rebecca.

Recently Died
We give thanks for the life and service of Peter Dwyer, former Dean’s Verger, who died last weekend. We remember with gratitude our many shared occasions and personal interactions, as we commit him to God’s care.
